About Me:

André Bélanger, a graduate of Loyola University, is a highly-respected criminal defense attorney serving the people of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and surrounding areas of  Ascension and Assumption Parishes. 

In his 23  years of practicing law, Mr. Bélanger has handled thousands of criminal cases at both the pre-trial and trial stage, including approximately 200 trials. This trial experience includes homicide defense and prosecution, large drug conspiracies and fraud cases making Bélanger one of the few attorneys capable of handling even the largest, most complex federal cases. Mr. Bélanger has argued in front of the United States Supreme Court, the United States Fifth Circuit and Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals and has handled complex federal prosecutions in Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma and Texas.

Mr. Bélanger is a multi- year recipient of the Nation Trial Lawyers Association’s Top 100 Lawyer’s Award and Louisiana’s Super Lawyers. 

Outside of a law office, André is happily married to his loving wife, Ashley, with whom he has two beautiful children, Luc and Mattheiu. He is a firm believer that it is because of their support that he has achieved so much success. André’s passion for cooking has developed a fondness for travel where he can explore different culinary traditions.  He also trains jiu jitsu with his children and our members of Team Jucao.
